Every project is unique, needing custom solutions tailored to the job. Your pipe may go through years of wear and tear, so it needs a coating that can hold up to the torrent of liquids, solids, or gasses passing through. While steel pipes are powerful on their own, a special coating gives them an edge to prolong their lifespan. This is also true for epoxy pipes, iron pipes, and carbon steel pipes. Pittsburgh Pipe offers a variety of pipe solutions for your next project.

Epoxy Coated Piping
Epoxy coated pipes have a higher corrosion resistance than other coatings due to the epoxy lining components. This coating forms a permanent barrier, preventing anything inside or out from causing tangible damage to the pipe. You won’t have to worry about leaks when you have a liquid epoxy coating. Epoxy is also cost-effective, with a low initial cost and is 30-40% cheaper than other pipe replacements, making it an affordable choice for any project. Epoxy takes much less time to apply than other coatings, and when many pipe replacements require structural adjustments, simplicity and durability are essential.
When new pipes are placed, the contractor has to access the pipes, remove or add any pipe to the new structure, adhere the additions or replacements, and restore the affected area. This process leaves the affected area down for an extended period. If this is a new pipe placement, it doesn’t affect those nearby or on-site as much, but if it’s a pipe replacement, many people will be unhappy. A fast and easy coating to apply drastically reduces the amount of time it takes to set your pipe and lets you move forward with the project sooner.
Coated Steel Pipes and Beyond
Pittsburgh Pipe provides a variety of piping materials that benefit from our custom coating process. Specifically, our piling fittings stand out from the competition. Our splice rings, also known as backing or chill rings, allow fast alignment of pipe in the field and speed the process. They prevent obstructions in the pipe and make the coatings more effective. All the splice rings we provide fall under our specifications, including:
- Standard Splice Ring Sizes to 36” Diameter
- Splicers Made of Carbon Steel, Stainless Steel, Chrome Moly, Aluminum, and Copper Nickel
- Custom Sizes to Meet Your Project Specifications
Our drive-fit couplings, also called weld-on couplings, cut costs and speed up the installation for your project by eliminating delays caused by butt welding pipe piles. These work well with splicers, since the driving is done first on the coupling, then the splice ring. When you have limited room and need special assistance, drive-fit couplings are your best answer.
